Another layout to share

Ok so this was layout two made using the same papers as were used in yesterdays post.



I love paper bows and this lovely large bow was made in 4 parts,


The small half banners were taken from a card idea I saw a few weeks before the class.


Number 3 and 4 layouts tomorrow. xx

The last Limited Edition

but a completely new paper company and one of my favourite sets of layouts from 2012.

In the class we made 4 layouts and a mini book. I found the papers really easy to use.



The pleated paper was first put through a border punch before folding. A hole was then punched through all of the concertina using a Big Bite and the ribbon threaded through before adding to the page.


The butterflies were cut out from one of the papers in the kit using the Tim Holtz Butterfly on the edge die.


The doily was also cut out using another Tim Holtz on the edge die.

More tomorrow xx.

A Lovely finished project

For the last fortnightly classes at SBS I decided to teach one of my favourite classes, the Secret Letter Box”. Everyone made a box but not everyone did their stamping so it was lovely to see Jannines finished box.




Thanks for sharing Jannine. xx

Well that was HOT

24 degrees when we started and 32 degrees when we finished but what a lovely class.

Some time ago I spotted a project by Nicole Eccles over on the Graphic 45 Blog. You can see the original project and instructions HERE.

Now obviously I didn’t have the box that she used so I sat down with Sally West and together we designed the same project but based around a hinged box with a book in it. Here are a few photos of the day










And of course, with it being so busy and hot, hot, hot, I forgot to photograph the projects so I will do that tomorrow.

Thank you once again for a lovely day and for the flowers and huge amount of cakes. It is very much appreciated. Love to all xxxx

Take a look at this

Chris Neal has been playing with Gayle's new Digi Stamps and made some lovely cards.


You can see more of Chris’s cards on her blog HERE.

Hello all

After a whole year my stint on the Scrapbook Sisters Blog has now come to an end and I leave it with happy memories and a 910 following so thank you to everyone who took the time to pop across and have a look. I can’t bear to be without making a post a day so I thought I’d start posting here.

These are from one of the last classes I taught at Scrapbook Sisters and I must say that everyone had a great time.



As requested by everyone at the Scrapping Your Family Class last week, I will be making kits for these so watch this space, and there are six more Scrapbooking Kits coming out real soon.

The last Mini Book Class was also a blast although there were some deep and meaningful sighs when everybody realised how much cutting needed to be done. I took the idea from an online class we did a while ago but used different shapes. Here are a few photos of the pages.





I know it was hard work but the books all looked great when they were finished.

Don’t forget to follow this blog as I will be posting loads of the past projects on here over the coming weeks.

Thanks for looking. Hugs xx
